Please note that all Aids made by REMAP are provided to Clients free of any costs to them.
The Charity currently employs the services of around 1,500 professional engineers,
technicians, crafts people and health experts now belonging to over 100 Panels, or groups of engineers etc, linked to regions across England, Northern Ireland and Wales, with Scotland being a financialy independent trust. The map above indicates Panels' distribution.
In 1990 REMAP with close to 100 Panels became independent of the Royal Association for
Disability and Rehabilitation (RADAR) of which it was then a part.
Referrals come to REM AP from Occupational Therapists, Physio Therapists together with other Health Care Professionals, charities acting for people with disabilities and, sometimes, form the individuals themselves.
Whilst REMAP is most effective in its service to Clients it still requires some funding to promote and perform its service. Visitors to this site may therefore like to consider a donation in the form of a covenant, legacy, or other tax effective way of giving money, remembering that if tax is paid by the donator the tax can be reclaimed through Gift Aid.
REMAP has associations with the charities, AbilityNet, BIME, Demand and Meru.

REMAP Tyne Panel
Tyne Panel is the REMAP Panel of the North East of England and covers the area from Durham to the
Scottish border and, to the west, to Haltwhistle. The Panel was originally called the Nothumberland South
Panel which was established in 1995. Around 2008 it became the Tyne-Tweed Panel and in 2003, due to the Wear and South Panel disbanding, it became simply the Tyne Panel. Currently the Panel has four active engineeer members together with a chairman/secretary and a treasurer. We are therefore desperately looking for interested volunteers so that we can extend our services.
